Rivenoak's Fool's / Newcomer's Tourney
April 3rd, 2011
Barony of Rivenoak (Chico, CA)
The Barony of Rivenoak wishes to invite all to join us for a day full of fun and adventure in our majestic Bidwell Park. The King and Queen of Misrule will be divined through Rivenoak's arcane art of Divination by Cupcake. The King and Queen of Misrule will then be properly Invested as is their due and the revelry will commence. The rough and tough will be challenged to display their most atrocious and brutish behavior to all while they prove that they have what it takes to be conscripted into the Baronial Brute Squad. We will have a Heavy and Rapier Tournament, Bardic and Heraldic Competitions, games, challenges, silliness, fun and foolishness. For our Newcomers, our Newcomer's Scavenger Hunt will take place as well as our Oldcomer's Scavenger Hunt. This is Rivenoak's Newcomer's event.
We look forward to having LOTS of Newcomers, in a high-profile area of our lovely Park. So, break out your weapons and armor (heavy or rapier), bring your Arts and Crafts and join our Barony in a day of revelry while we welcome our community and represent to them the greatness of our Society.
